Data-gov wiki, a project of the Tetherless World Constellation at RPI, works on putting data.gov datasets in RDF.

One of the datasets, dataset 92, is the data.gov catalog description itself. the translation is a straightforward one from the CSV file i.e. a vocabulary is defined for each dataset.

An example of a dataset description from http://data-gov.tw.rpi.edu/raw/92/data-92.rdf (excerpt):
